Everyone loves to dig in the dirt – but what if this digging helps to give us a better sense of the past? The goal of this program is to help train and sharpen students’ historical inquiry, analysis, and interpretation skills. The lesson accomplishes this goal through the conduct of an archaeological dig in miniature based on the methods and vocabulary of archaeological science. Each artifact found contains clues of its manufacture, date, origin and use. To decipher the clues, one needs to ask questions like “when was this made or used?” Asking and answering these questions as well as digging in the dirt are the most important parts of this program. Held rain or shine. Grade-specific learning for grades 3 through diploma. Please call or email to make reservations for this event.
